Pocket Monsters the Movie: Coco

  (Redirected from Pokémon the Movie: Coco)

Pocket Monsters the Movie: Coco (劇場版ポケットモンスター ココ, Gekijō-ban Pokettomonsutā Koko) is an upcoming Japanese anime film based on Satoshi Tajiri's Pokémon media franchise and produced by OLM. It is the twenty-third film in the Pokémon universe and the third film in the Alternate Timeline series. The film returns to the series’ traditional 2D art style rather than using the CGI animation used in Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution. It will feature the new Generation VIII Mythical Pokémon Zarude and a shiny Celebi. It was originally set to be released in theatres in Japan on July 10, 2020,[2] but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3] The film is rescheduled for a late 2020 release in Japan.[4]
